A special posthumous award will be awarded to Lee Alexander McQueen at tonight's
British Fashion Awards.

The BFC announced it was honour the late designer for Outstanding Achievement in Fashion Design, in particular his exceptional impact on global fashion.

McQueen was a four time winner of British Designer of the Year award. Tonight his legacy will be commemorated with a film of his most iconic pieces directed by Nick Knight to the soundtrack of Bjork.

"The Outstanding Achievement Award celebrates the exceptional talent of an individual who has contributed to the British fashion industry both internationally, and here in the UK throughout their career. There was only one person we felt we could recognize with this award this year - Lee McQueen," said Harold Tillman.

Catwalk Queen will have full coverage of the British Fashion Awards 2010 tomorrow.
